With the union of "clear awareness and emptiness", this teachings is dependent upon what one is trying to do, thus the "Om, Ah, and Hung syllables" do not necessarily "mark the forehead, throat, and heart of all deities".

In other words the "essence of their body, speech, and mind is the same" but that essence is not bound by any shape, color, form or position.

However, if all the enlightened wanted to exert unanimity on this point then all could manifest these syllables in those positions.

The Catholics use the word mystery as the enlightened ones are not trying to keep knowledge, wisdom or understanding from anyone but the individual must exert effort to resolve the mystery.

Truly,

The Om Ah Hung Vajra Recitation, Part 1:

What do the Om, Ah, and Hung syllables represent? Om represents the vajra of form, the union of appearance and emptiness. Ah represents the vajra of speech, the union of sound and emptiness. Hung represents the vajra of mind, the union of clear awareness and emptiness. These are called "the three secrets." When there is no grasping to perceived form, this is the union of appearance and emptiness. Forms continue to appear and are seen, yet there is no grasping at their reality. When there is no grasping at perceived sounds, this is the union of sound and emptiness. Sounds continue to be heard, yet there is no grasping at their reality. If the mind neither grasps at sights nor sounds, it will naturally rest within the union of awareness and emptiness and thus will not grasp at mental arisings either. The three vajras are contained within the vajra of the mind. Thus the Om, Ah, and Hung syllables mark the forehead, throat, and heart of all deities-—while deities appear in myriad forms, the essence of their body, speech, and mind is the same.
